Leverkusen suggest that Schurrle on his way to Chelsea

Andre Schurrle appears poised for a Chelsea switch after Bayer Leverkusen said they believed the Germany striker had agreed to join the Blues.

The Bundesliga side have also confirmed they are considering a bid for the 22-year-old international.

"Andre Schurrle has probably signed a pre-contract deal with Chelsea," Bayer general manager Wolfgang Holzhauser told Kicker magazine.

"We have received a concrete offer for a fee, which we are considering."

He added: "The price alone is not decisive. We must also have alternatives, which we don't have yet."
